What are fancy pants?

Two years ago my daughter Laura was born. She is as girly as they come and loves big bows, frilly dresses, dolls and of course- shoes! I love it, love it, love it! It has been such a nice change from the cars, trains, dinosaurs and war games that my boys are immersed in.

Anyway, she is my third child and quite possibly my last- which would make her my only girl. ( whether we will have a fourth child is a current "discussion" in our household- and the conceding party is yet to be determined) That being said, I find myself wanting to dress her in what I consider "ultra-cute" and I often leave the stores empty handed because of it. What I want just isn't around. ( well-what I really should say is that it isn't around in my price range) .

Now, I have a beautiful younger sister who has an ultra-cute daughter of her own and she directed me to the custom-handmade section of toddler clothing on ebay last spring. Wow!- this is the mecca of adorable outfits and just what I was looking for.

However, I have never been one to pay high prices for something I think I can make myself. Fortunately, I have a passion for sewing. Someday, when the hereditary arthritis kicks in and I can no longer create something on my machine everyday I will be heartbroken. ( I'm counting on the medical masters to create a potion for me by then). So, I began sewing. Since then Laura has been decked out in a complete wardrobe of what has been dubbed "Fancy Pants." In fact, I can hardly bear to put a pair of pants on her that don't have some sort of ruffle, fringe or embellishment.

Fancy pants- I love 'em. They make me smile. Posted by Picasa
